This article is a critical interpretation of selected theoretical musical ideas of the Czech composer Alois Haba (1893-1973), which first appeared in his book 'Neue Harmonielehre' (1927). This work is generally considered to be the author's individual expression of his own creative ideas. However, it also links to the past, specifically to the Bohemian theorists who were not influenced by Riemann's 'Funktionstheorie'. Haba's work becomes of greater value when one considers its links to the work of Arnold Schoenberg. The interpretation uses a copy of Haba's 'Neue Harmonielehre' annotated by Schoenberg, now in the Arnold Schoenberg Center in Vienna. Much of what has been said by Schoenberg (in the field of Harmonielehre), appears in a different forms in Haba's work. His effort to differ Schoenberg, whilst at the same time finding a common ground, can easily be followed in the discussion on dissonances (including harmonic dissonances), as well as accentuating the importance of keys and the harmony of fourths. The passage on aesthetic production (principles of the creation of a work of art) is of special interest.
